This game is simple, fun, and easy to adapt to
account for various team sizes and experience.
How to run the gameEach player starts with a ball at his or her feet.
Create a 'neutral area' between the two teams where
no player is allowed. This area can be as small as one yard and as big
as 10 yards wide. The width is determined by how far the players can
kick the ball.
On command, each team tries to keep their side of
the game zone free of balls by kicking their ball over to the other
After an appropriate amount of time (when the balls
become too scattered, or the players are losing focus), stop the game
and count which side has the most balls on their side.
Distribute the balls evenly for another try.
After players have found some success with the
basic game, try these variations:
Players can only use their left foot.
They can throw the ball back.
They must dribble the ball around a cone that has
been set up in the middle of their "yard" and then kick it back.
